A correspondent of the Alexandria Gazette, writing from Leesburg, Loudoun county, Va.
"I have heard that Mr. C. W. Morgan
, a printer by trade, and a daguerreotypist by occupation, has received an appointment to a clerkship in Washington
He is a Pennsylvanian, who married in this county, and is said to be a near connexion of Mr. David Wilmot
We have understood that Mr. Morgan
is a brother-in-law of Mr. Wilmot
, and that he received his appointment at the earnest solicitation of Mr. Wilmot
and Galusha A. Grow
, and he is charged to Virginia
as an appointment from that State.
Mr. T. C. L. Hatcher
, of Loudoun county, Va.
, who held a first-class clerkship in the Census Bureau, has been removed for the avowed reason of giving place to a man from the same county who had Republican proclivities and strong Republican influence.--Mr.
H. was informed that his services were entirely acceptable as far as regarded competency, but that the new appointee had Republican
influence and Mr. H. had not.
